INDICATED USE: General purpose survey with alarm capabilities
DETECTOR: 6(15.2cm) diameter X 1(2.5cm) thick plastic scintillation detector
SENSITIVITY: Typically 2000 cpm/R/hr (137Cs gamma)
METER DIAL: 0 - 1 R/hr, BAT TEST (others available )
MULTIPLIERS: X1, X10, X100, X1000
LINEARITY: Reading within 10% of true value
ALARM: The Model 193 has a dual action alarm.
     1. A fixed alarm point can be set at any point from 10% of full scale to full scale, and is indicated          by a constant audible tone, and the lamp turning on.
     2. A quick deviation alarm that is based on background radiation levels. When the instrument is          turned on, it takes an 8 second measurement of background radiation levels and determines a          deviation alarm setting. If the radiation level exceeds this setting, the alarm audio will beep          every 1/8 second, and the lamp will flash.
